Camellias are one of those plants that can live and thrive for decades with little or no care. Even without fertilization, insect control, pruning, mulching, and regular watering, camellias can survive and still be impressive. This characteristic makes them one of the most resilient ornamental that you will ever have in your garden.
In many cemeteries across America, camellias have been growing for over a century with virtually no care at all in most cases. Still, these winter blooming jewels continue to put on a captivating display of flowers every season. The incredible camellia’s amazing resilience is demonstrated in the camellia gallery below.
